No. 8 Loyola waited 24 years to try to avenge some past embarrassment against Hopkins, but the Greyhounds still fell to the No. 4 Blue Jays, 16-11, last night before nearly 3,000 at Homewood Field.
Loyola senior attackman Kevin Beach didn't think it was a massacre, but he knows a victory over Johns Hopkins is important for the Loyola program.
Loyola answered with four straight goals in a minute to pull within 9-8. Beach, after stealing a pass from a Blue Jays defenseman outside the crease, scored with 10:45 remaining. Fourteen seconds later, after Loyola won the faceoff, Kevin Anderson scored after winning a loose ball outside the crease.
